University of Rochester

Merit Based


The University of Rochester awards merit-based scholarships to first-year and transfer students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement and potential, regardless of financial circumstances. Merit scholarship amounts range from 2,000 per year to full tuition. All admitted undergraduate applicants to the College are considered for merit scholarships. Merit scholarships are awarded to students during the admission process and renewed annually if satisfactory academic performance and full-time status are maintained. Students are eligible to receive only one scholarship.

Scholarship Requirements:

  • Named for the river surrounding our campus, the Genesee Scholarship aims to answer some of the financial challenges a research-university education may present over four years.
  • Genesee Scholars will shape our residential and academic communities and inspire their teachers and classmates, helping to make the University of Rochester “ever better.”
